HAZARDS IDENTIFICATION ----------------------------------------------------------PRIMARY ROUTES OF EXPOSURE: Avoid breathing dust, eye contact, skin contact, ingestion. SKIN CONTACT: Allergic skin reaction or irritation can occur following direct contact with this material. Symptoms such as itching, redness or swelling might be immediate or delayed. EYE CONTACT: Potential to produce irritation is not known. Assume symptoms might include redness or swelling. INHALATION: Effects of breathing dust are not known. Avoid inhaling this material. INGESTION: Toxicity following ingestion is not expected. Constipation or diarrhea may result following ingestion of large quantities. CONDITIONS AGGRAVATED BY EXPOSURE: None known. ----------------------------------------------------------4. FIRST-AID MEASURES ----------------------------------------------------------SKIN CONTACT: Remove contaminated clothing and flush exposed area with large amounts of water. Obtain medical assistance if skin reaction occurs, which may be immediate or delayed. NOTE TO PHYSICIAN: None. EYE CONTACT: Flush eyes continuously with water for at least 15 minutes and obtain medical assistance. NOTE TO PHYSICIAN: Consider further flushing of eyes with large amounts of water or saline. INHALATION: General procedures for inhalation overexposures are as follows. Move exposed subject to fresh air and seek medical assistance. IF BREATHING HAS STOPPED, START BASIC LIFE SUPPORT AND SEEK IMMEDIATE MEDICAL ASSISTANCE. NOTE TO PHYSICIAN: For combustion products, refer to section number 5. INGESTION: In the event of swallowing this material, seek immediate medical assistance. NOTE TO PHYSICIAN: This material is not a corrosive agent. ANTIDOTES: None.

----------------------------------------------------------5. FIRE-FIGHTING MEASURES ----------------------------------------------------------FIRE CONTROL: A fire or heating of this material is expected to produce toxic or corrosive gases. This material is expected to support combustion. Water, dry powder or foam extinguishers are recommended. Carbon dioxide extinguishers may be ineffective. SPECIAL FIREFIGHTING PROCEDURES: Toxic or corrosive gases including oxides of carbon and nitrogen are expected in fires involving this material. Self-contained breathing apparatus and full protective equipment are recommended for firefighters. Move containers from fire area if possible without increased personal risk. Dike area if possible to contain water for later disposal. ----------------------------------------------------------6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES ----------------------------------------------------------SPILLS: For large spills, wear protective clothing and equipment consistent with the degree of hazard. Carefully scoop up the spillage, avoid dust generation and place in a suitable, properly labeled container for recovery or disposal. Take care to avoid excessive dust during cleanup. Wash down spillage area with copious amounts of water without allowing this material to enter surface drainage systems. This must only be undertaken if waste water can be directed to an on-site waste water treatment system. DECONTAMINATION PROCEDURES: Solvents specified in Section 9, under solubility, or detergent solutions can be used for clean-up and decontamination operations. No specific detoxification procedures have been identified for this substance. ----------------------------------------------------------7. HANDLING AND STORAGE ----------------------------------------------------------HANDLING: Use adequate ventilation. STORAGE: Store in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. ----------------------------------------------------------8. EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION ----------------------------------------------------------EXPOSURE CONTROLS: VIRGINIAMYCIN: SMITHKLINE BEECHAM (PEL): 1.5 MG/M3 (8 HR TWA) PEL UNITED STATES (ACGIH): No Exposure Limit Established. UNITED STATES (OSHA): No Exposure Limit Established. INDUSTRIAL HYGIENE METHOD: For SmithKline Beecham operations, contact the site Occupational or Industrial Hygienist or regional Corporate health and safety group, as appropriate, for advice on suitable monitoring methods. For other operations, industrial hygiene monitoring advice may be obtained from the health and safety group identified in section 1. PERSONAL PROTECTION: RESPIRATORS: If dust is present, a laboratory fume hood, local exhaust ventilation or an appropriate respirator should be used. The specific type used will be determined by air concentrations present. Follow local regulations for respirator use in the workplace. GLOVES: Avoid skin contact or wear impervious gloves when handling this material. EYE PROTECTION: Wear safety glasses or goggles if eye contact is possible. HYGIENE PRACTICES: Wash hands and arms thoroughly after handling this material. Clean up spills immediately. OTHER PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT: Wear clothing with long sleeves to avoid skin contact.

----------------------------------------------------------9. PHYSICAL AND CHEMICAL PROPERTIES ----------------------------------------------------------APPEARANCE: Brown, granulated powder with characteristic fermentation odor and very bitter taste. FLASH POINT: Expected to be greater than 55 degrees C. AUTOIGNITION TEMP: Not determined. LOWER EXPLOSIVE LIMIT: Not applicable for solids. UPPER EXPLOSIVE LIMIT: Not applicable for solids. MELTING POINT: Not determined. BOILING POINT: Not determined. VAPOUR DENSITY: Expected to be negligible. VAPOUR PRESSURE: Expected to be negligible. EVAPORATION RATE: Expected to be negligible. VOLATILE COMPONENTS (%): None expected. VISCOSITY: Not applicable for solids. PH OF AQUEOUS SOLUTIONS: Not applicable. RELATIVE DENSITY: Not determined. CONDUCTIVITY: Not applicable for solids. OCTANOL/WATER DISTRIBUTION COEFFICIENT: Not determined. DISSOCIATION CONSTANT (pKA): Not determined. SOLUBILITY: Components are insoluble in water. OXYGEN BALANCE: Not determined. TRAIN FIRE TEST: Since this material has not been train fire tested, it should be assumed to support combustion in bulk quantities. DUST EXPLOSIVITY: Not determined. DUST ELECTRICAL PROPERTIES: Not determined. ----------------------------------------------------------10. STABILITY AND REACTIVITY ----------------------------------------------------------CONDITIONS TO AVOID: Avoid dust generation, high temperatures (greater than 200 degrees F) and incompatibles. Keep dry. INCOMPATIBILITY: One component, calcium carbonate, is not compatible with acids, aluminum salts, ammonium salts, or fluorine. STABILITY: Stable at temperatures below 200 degrees F (93 degrees C). HAZARDOUS POLYMERIZATION: None known. HAZARDOUS DECOMPOSITION PRODUCTS: Thermal decomposition products may include toxic and hazardous gases including calcium oxide, oxides of carbon, oxides of nitrogen, aldehydes, ketones, and organic acid. UNUSUAL FIRE AND EXPLOSION HAZARDS: As with all dusts, may form explosive mixture when dispersed in air. ----------------------------------------------------------11. TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION ----------------------------------------------------------ORAL TOXICITY: This mixture is expected to be non-toxic following ingestion.
